Kia Cee'd: Rear seat / Folding the rear seat

The rear seatbacks (or cushions) may be folded to facilitate carrying long items or to increase the luggage capacity of the vehicle.

WARNING

The purpose of the fold-down rear seatbacks (or cushions) is to allow you to carry longer objects than could otherwise be accommodated. Never allow passengers to sit on top of the folded down seatback while the car is moving as this is not a proper seating position and no seat belts are available for use. This could result in serious injury or death in case of an accident or sudden stop. Objects carried on the folded down seatback should not extend higher than the top of the front seats. This could allow cargo to slide forward and cause injury or damage during sudden stops.

To fold the rear seat cushion and back (5 Door and Wagon)

1. Set the front seatback to the upright position and if necessary, slide the front seat forward.

2. Lift the front portion of the seat cushion up.

3. Lift the rear portion of the seat cushion. Stand the rear seat cushion vertically.

4. Pull the lock release lever (red visible).

5. Remove the headrest from the rear seatback.

6. Stow the headrest by inserting the headrest poles into the holder on the bottom of the seat cushion.

7. Fold the rear seatback forward and down firmly.

8. To use the rear seat, reposition the headrest on the seatback and adjust it to the desired position.

9. Lift and push the seatback backward firmly until it clicks into place. Make sure the seatback is locked in place (red invisible).

10. Return the seat cushion to the original position by pushing down the rear side of the seat cushion first. Make sure the seat cushion is locked in place.

11. Return the rear seat belt to the proper position.

To fold down the rear seatback (for 3 Door):

1. Set the front seatback to the upright position and if necessary, slide the front seat forward.

2. Lower the rear headrests to the lowest position.

3. Pull the lock release lever (1) and fold the rear seatback forward and down firmly.

If the seat belt locks after unfolding the rear seatback, pull out the locked seat belt, release it then pull it out again.

To unfold the rear seat

1. To use the rear seat, lift and pull the seatback backward. Pull the seatback firmly until it clicks into place. Make sure the seatback is locked in place. When you return the seatback to its upright position, always be sure it has locked into position by pushing on the top of the seatback.

If you can not see the red line at the bottom of folding lever, it means the seatback is locked completely.

2. Return the rear seat belt to the proper position.

3. When the seatback is completely installed, check the seatback folding lever again.

WARNING

When you return the rear seatback to its upright position after being folded down:

Be careful not to damage the seat belt webbing or buckle. Do not allow the seat belt webbing or buckle to get caught or pinched in the rear seat. Ensure that the seatback is completely locked into its upright position by pushing on the top of the seatback. Otherwise, in an accident or sudden stop, the seat could fold down and allow cargo to enter the passenger compartment, which could result in serious injury or death.

CAUTION - Rear seat belts

When returning the rear seatbacks to the upright position, remember to return the rear shoulder belts to their proper position.

WARNING - Cargo

Cargo should always be secured to prevent it from being thrown about the vehicle in a collision and causing injury to the vehicle occupants. Special care should be taken of objects placed in the rear seats, since those may hit the front seat occupants in a frontal collision.

WARNING - Cargo loading

Make sure the engine is off, the automatic transaxle is in P (Park) or the manual transaxle is in R (Reverse) or 1st, and the parking brake is securely applied whenever loading or unloading cargo. Failure to take these steps may allow the vehicle to move if the shift lever is inadvertently moved to another position.

Armrest
To use the armrest, pull it forward from the seatback. ...
